How did that happen?
Life happens, we fall behind. But, we can always catch up!
So what's been going on since I've last posted?
In March and April I was SUPER busy with Preschool Outreach. I am the go to person for Tuesday mornings, which means I revisited the same kids every other week.
At one preschool the oldest classroom LOVED the Jim Gill song, "One From the Left." The requested we do that song as soon as I popped my head in the door, and I happily obliged. Their teacher told me they had started to sing it all the time after my first visit. If you don't know the song here is the video below!
Last year I was told that we took themed books to preschools. This year I did my own thing. I brought books that I loved, books that were interactive, and most importantly books that were hilarious.
Here are just a few of my favorites.
"The Book with No Pictures" by B.J. Novak
Always a hit, especially when you say "Boo Boo Butt."
"Warning: Don't Open This Book" by Adam Lehrhaupt
If you want the full effect, you'll have to practice with this book before reading it aloud.
"Don't Push the Button" by Bill Cotter
Great for the younger ones.
These are just a few of the fantastic interactive books I brought with me to the preschools this spring. What are your favorite outreach titles?
